There have been rumors and rating board leaks hinting at a Dreamcast digital comeback. Today, Sega confirmed the rumors.
Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi will be re-released this fall on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Sega enhanced both titles with modern features such as high resolution visuals, surround sound, trophies/achievements, and online leaderboards. While Sega is making some improvements, these are essentially the Dreamcast classics you love (or hate) transferred over fiber optic cables.
“There are few things that are more requested from us than making Dreamcast classics available for download in today’s digital market place. We’re very excited to begin offering gamers our beloved Dreamcast titles again on the current console systems,” said Haruki Satomi, VP of Digital Business at SEGA of America.
C’mon Sega, let’s see Jet Grind Radio, Shenmue, and Illbleed next. Those are some of my picks. What are yours?
